in property damage. Part of it was the type shown here -automobiles crushed under tons of silt and debris

died here yesterday morning from
injuries received when he drove his
car into a freight train on the Urania
crossing near Milan Tuesday night.
He was discovered by a railroad
brakeman after he had found a wheel
cn a derailed freight car. Skull
fracture and several internal injur-
ies caused his death.
Hertler, a life-long resident of
Washtenaw county, was born in
York township March 16, 1881. Fun-

So Segal and the clerks remained
still and silent as their visitors took
